This is the story of a media-obsessed bride becoming wedding media herself. But in this case, the bride totally made peace with her obsession and ended up with a wedding to rival all the ones she idolized. Her red gown, colorful fall decor, and epic venue with a mountain backdrop all make us wish we were right there with them. Just watch out for Zorro and Pancho Villa… there's bound to be a fight there.

We don't even know where to start with this explosion of awesome, so let's just gush: metal rocket ships, plastic reindeer, vintage arcade games and a jukebox, wine barrels, vintage furniture, antlers, succulents… all DIYed to blissful, farm-raised local perfection.
This couple and their friends are artists and IT SHOWS. The metal ceremony arch the groom made will knock you out, too. Oh, and wait until you hear the coincidence with the sweetheart table chairs!
Oh, rural mountain views… you tease us with your splendor and ability to lure in gorgeous tiny weddings like this one. Cowboy boots, acoustic guitars, and carrot cake await you. The flowers, campfire, and sunny weather just taunt you. And we're all falling in love with these sage-wielding, poem reading yogis and Deadheads.
When the couple calls themselves "moon-loving techno-hippies," we know we're in for some fun. Get ready for some family vows (and a family sand ceremony!), some cat-loving vows, and a desert horizon at a ranch that ended up being their ideal location. It's a small, outdoor wedding with big heart.
Red lipstick and freckles — I could eat that combo for breakfast. It looks like I'm not the only one appreciating Carrie's wedding style. Her bride Ria is sending some of the most adorable admiring gazes her way. Ria's no slouch on the fashion either, in a stellar vest and checkered shirt. The couple got married on the rooftop of Fort Collins' Lincoln Center, reading their own vows and shooting dazzling smiles all over the place.
Rare is the time we get a sports-themed submission written by a Tribesdude! It was extra special since it merited a few legit happy tears during the "last dance" section. Come enjoy the boat venue, sweet H.P. Lovecraft-infused ceremony, whiskey ceremony, and impromptu karaoke session. Oh, and wait until you see what the bouquets were made of!
Our ceremony was a traditional Ojibwa wedding, performed by an Ojibwa elder. Ojibwa is an eastern Canadian native American tribe which is Jonah's ancestry. Our wedding was held outdoors from ceremony to pictures to dinner to reception. The reception was held at night under a patch of trees. We danced on a grass dance floor.
Fire dancers, circus performers, Alice in Wonderland costumes, and a big fireworks show — this is a theme combination that rocks hard. Feast your eyes on the chair jugglers, dancers, and of course, guests dressed as cards, the Queen of Hearts, and the Mad Hatter. And of course, the blue corset gown and dapper top hat on the bride and groom give us the feels, too!
Give us a laid-back seaside wedding any day, especially if it includes copious amounts of beer, BBQ, and boots! this bride and bearded groom know how to party and how to keep stress low when planning a wedding. Don't miss the rustic arch, sunflower centerpieces, and all-beards-on-deck photo op!
In need of a vacation? Work getting you down? Then this wedding is the balm for your soul. A beach resort in Mexico, poolside margaritas (ALL the margaritas!), a dreamy Wai-Ching dress, and a laid-back feel makes this the perfect remedy for all your woes. These two may have encountered some bumps planning a destination wedding, but the end result is beach-tastic.
